Grand Casual Tour Update

Has been a super hectic fortnight for my good self, some absolutely golden ups and downs. But that’s life, constantly evolving quick to change. Like the late great Bill Hicks said “it’s just a ride”.

 

November on the…

Swamp Thing!!!!!

Over the past five years I’ve met and had the pleasure of working with some brilliant musicians both local and touring. When I think back upon my favourite live performances there is one act that stands firmly above the crowd…

Touring in regional WA

Touring really is an epic proposition for musicians. There are so many obstacles to getting out on the road. In a perfect world Comfort Inn, Ibis or one of these chain accommodation type setups would offer discounted rates for musicians…

Cleverest Name I've Heard in a While

Mt Cleverest hit the road for their first Southwest tour tying in Bunbury, Margaret River and our very own Esperance. 

Based out of Perth the lads recently released their first ep “Money” which is the true catalyst for…

The White Gretsch Hangover

I think all artists reach a point where they become disillusioned by their previous work.

My solo performance has been feeling a little like this of…

1 (uni) degree of separation

I studied Tourism Management with a minor in marketing at ECU. I scraped through with the bare minimum results as no doubt a lot of teens flung straight from Tee Exams into University have done. Wild weekends and bad choices…

Winter Musings

Do you ever feel the urge to just throw your phone, television, or computer directly at the wall? Imagine that initial emotion of relief as a device that systematically draws your productivity, motivation and social interaction splinters into a sprawling…

The Lineup - July 2018

You must remain creative to stay ahead of the game. 

Society is so fast paced these days people crave new and exciting experiences, new and exciting looks, new and exciting sounds. 

These things once so new quickly…

The Lineup - May 2018

 

Over the last two weeks I have had no gigs. 

Seems rather odd to have a couple of weekends free. 

What I’ve noticed most is the impact a hectic schedule has on valuable relationships. It becomes very…

CanJam Volume.2 was successful beyond our wildest imaginings. The Cannery Arts Centre Gallery is a sublime space for live music, and all in attendance experienced a thoroughly intimate vibe. After a hectic…

The Lineup - February 2018

How easy is it to become overwhelmed? Life happens at such a fast pace, where all guilty of taking on more than we can handle. I absolutely love what I do though I regularly question whether I’m heading in…

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I hope your prepared. To be completely honest I’ve never really been overly excited about the date, dubbing February 14th hallmark day. Quite possibly…

The Summer vibes are Creeping Back

Thank you to everyone who dropped past and had a listen to the busking stage at the Esperance show last weekend. Thank you to the show committee for having us along also to the crew who played over the…

Summer, busking, beaches, and Evergone

Damn those balmy Esperance nights make me tip back a beverage or three. Esperance experienced some slick slick weather Saturday and Sunday, perfectly timed for a killer Sunday Session down at Taylors, Tom Clark, John Ratcliff and Daniel Senior shredding…
